Market need: In many developing economies, agriculture is mainly dependent on rains the local water bodies for irrigation for which manually or mechanically driven hand pumps and bore wells are used but due to their low productivity, these are being replaced by electricity driven pumps, which again due uncertainty in regular availability are losing their utility. Solar pumps provided some solution but their high cost of initial investment, immobility and low utility is making them too infeasible. The startup aims to Liberate Indian farmers from dependency of electricity supply, by providing alternative sources of Energy using natural resources Provide by cost effective, secured solution to meet their need of power supply to run Irrigation pumps and allied agricultural machinery . Provide 24x7 mobile home lighting system using natural resources
Product/Service description: The start up aims to solve the problem through mobile, multiple user friendly mobile solar generator & Pump. It has developed a unique mobile solar power plant of capacity upto 5 KW capable to run irrigation pumps, home lighting, supply power to small scale rural industries like handlooms, cyber hubs and schools . Patent for the product has already been applied for. Trolley based Solar power generation system (our solution) provides cost effective, efficient & eco-friendly solution, overcoming all the issues faced by earlier solutions explained above. It increased the mobility as well the utility by integrating the solar based water pumping system and power generation system on a mobile trolley. The integrated system is equipped with solar panels capable to produce upto 3 KW of green energy which is used to run a solar pump directly through a innovative control device and can also be used to power electrical systems upto 3HP of energy consumption through a versatile battery based storage system. USP of the solution is uniquely inclined placement of solar panels for optimized generation of solar power, a unique control devise to run solar pumps directly linking with solar power without routing through battery storage system. The human machine interface of the system is so user friendly so that anyone can operate it without prior training. The system is multi-use & multifunctional capable to run a solar irrigation pump, provide home electrification, operate utility equipment like sewing machine and Wheat mill and operate Agri-equipment to be used in fields. The system has easy key and lock security feature as well.
